I'm looking to replace an old 7204 router (NPE-150) with something more up to date. The machine is beginning to run out of memory and that specific NPE is maxed out on the RAM (128MB). I'm not crazy about having to spend 30,000 on a 7206VXR with NPE-G2.
The existing machine has two T1's from two different ISP's connected to it and a FE port into the LAN (also, a HSSI card that's not used). It gets full BGP updates from both ISPs. I would like a replacement router that can handle a similar setup and also be T3 capable (perhaps with an add-on card). IPS and VPN would be nice too. What are my options?
